Under the able guidance of Gilbert I 
K. Ludwig, presiding officer, the Me- 
chanical. Engineers, meeting as a Stu- 
dent branch of the American Society 
of Mechanical Engineers, elected their 
officers for the present school year^ 
discussed qualifications of new mem- 
bers, and made plans for the year’s 
work. Officers elected are: Gilbert 
Ludwig, President; R. Best, Vice- 
President; W. H. I^awrence, Secretary, 
and W. H. Seaquest, Treasurer. 

In his opening remarks Mr. Ludwig 
urged the society to consider joint 
meetings with the Student Branch of 
the American Society of Mechanical 
Engineers at George Washington with 
those of the Catholic University and 
the University of Maryland. He 
pointed out that it would be mutually 
beneficial for the three branches to 

After some little discussion the 
matter of qualifications for new mem- 
bers was left up to the executive com- 
mittee headed by Prof. Johnson. 

The present membership enrollment 
in the Student Branch has been in- 
creased to twenty, but it was decided 
to continue efforts until the' active 
membership has been increased to at 
least forty students.

Early in the third period the 
Hatchetmen carried the ball to the 
Medicos 6-yard line, and Loehler 
smashed it over the goal line. The 
referee, after studying the situation 
for several moments, walked over to 
Resh who was hanging onto the goal 
post and called him for holding r

five more for alleged delaying of the

Newby went to the Blue jays’ 2-yard

tackled he arose from over the pig-

the most part, a sketch of the life of 
William Wilson Corcoran, for whom 
the building is named, and who is 
well known to all Washingtonians as 
the greatest philanthropist the city 
has ever known. Particularly among 
those connected with the University is 
his name a familiar one. 

William Wilson Corcoran was an 
Irish American, son 6t Thomas Cor- 
coran, who was one of the found- i 
ers of the University and a trustee 
during his life. Following the incli- 
nations of his father, young Corcoran 
early proved himself a true friend of 
George Washington, not only through 
his substantial gift for its endowment 
but through various smaller donations 
in times of financial stress. 

One fact that has never been widely 
known was brought out by the presi- 
dent of the Board of Trustees. “I 
doubt very much.” he said, “if there 
is anyone here this evening who re- 
calls the fact that the trustees at one 
time desired to change the name of 
the college from ‘Columbian’ to ‘Cor- 
coran University,’ and that Mr. Cor- 
coran declined the honor and sug- 
gested the name of ‘Columbian Uni- 
versity.’ This suggestion was later 
carried out by an act of Congress.” 

Following his dedication of Cor- 
coran Hall, Mr. Lamer presented the 
keys to Dr. William Mather Lewis, 
President of the University, thereby 
following an old and established cus- 
tom and adding a certain picturesque 
interest to the occasion. In connec- 
tion with this he said that “this sym- 
bolic delivery of the keys means added 
responsibility for the maintenance of 
the University in the high standards 
of morals and scholarship which a 
university must have.” 

In conclusion, he pledged the con- 
tinued support of the trustees in the 
effort of the officers of the University 
to build the greater George Washing- 
ton University, and thanked the 
“generous public that has, during the 
recent canvass for funds for the 
Building and Endowment Fund, con- 
tributed sufficient money to make pos- 
sible the erection of this magnificent 
building for the Arts and Sciences 
Department.” * 

President Lewis, after accepting 
the keys to Corcoran Hall, addressed 
a graduating class of 79, the first 
class to graduate in the new building. 
He urged them to dedicate their lives 
to thought, as Corcoran Hall was that 
evening dedicated to the purposes of 

Speaking of the time saved by the 
devices of civilization. President Lewis 
remarked that “certainly only a small 
part goes to quiet contemplation of 
personal and national problems. But

While in New York during the 
later part of the week President Wil- 
liam Mather Lewis arranged for 
several internationally known lec- 
turers to come to Washington this 
winter and speak at a series of public 
lectures which will be given under the 
auspices of the University. 

Several English, French and Italian 
lecturers of note will visit this coun- 
try during the winter, and it is ex- 
pected their tours will start with 
George Washington. 

This lecture course, which was 
started by the University last winter, 
has made a profound impression. 
I^ast season the series of lectures 
embraced the field of art, literature 
and drama. During the summer and 
while the National Educational Asso- 
ciation was here the University pre- 
sented several notable government 
officials in phases of their work. 

The broadening out of the lecture 
series to be international will no 
doubt be of unusual interest, both to 
the student body and the public in 
general. Now that the University is 
equipped to take care of large 
gatherings in Corcoran Hall and the 
new gymnasium it will have a cen- 
tralizing influence which will build up 
an even larger following of these 
lectures than last year. 

Forty-five members of the Theta 
Delta Chi Fraternity gathered at the 
University Club Thursday night, Oc- 
tober 30, to celebrate the seventy- 
seventh birthday of the fraternity, 
which was founded in 1847 at Union 
College, Schenectady, N. Y. 

Senor Cayetano de Quesado, Cuban 
Consul and nephew of Dr. Gonzalo de 
Quesado, first Cuban Minister to the 
United States, was the guest of honor 
of the occasion. 

Freshmen of the local chapter pre- 
sented a short three-act play entitled 
“Why Girls Leave Home” as a fea- 
ture of the evening’s entertainment. 
Stanton Judkins Peelle, Chief Justice 
of the Moot Court of Appeals of the 
George Washington Law School; 
Prof. George Washington Phillips, 

Loehler was the outstanding star 
of the contest. His punts were long 
and high, averaging nearly 60 yards, 
and he tore through the line at a 
terrific pace at will. Bo I^tmar ran 
the team well and played a Wide- 
awake game. His running back of 
punts and bis drop-kicking featured 
the contest. Kris, Goldman and Zol- 
lar were the front-line stars. The 
entire team fought hard and deserved 
a decisive victory. 

For Hopkins, Taylor was the indi- 
vidual star. He was their only 
ground gainer, and played his quar- 
terback position well. Turnbull waa 
outpunted, and his drop-kick was 
from an easy position in midfield. 

Captain Hottel won the tosa, and 
elected to receive. Lamar received 
the ball on the 5-yard line and went 
22 yards before he was downed. A 
punting duel between loehler and 
Turnbull ensued, with the edge well 
in I oehler’s favor. Both teams tried 
out their passes towards the end of 
the period, G. W. completing the only 
one for a gain of 3 yards. 

The Bluejays recovered a Hatchetite 
fumble toward the •end of the quarter 
and went to the 25-yard line. Turn- 
bull tried a placement kick that went 
low and wide. The period ended with- 
the ball in the Medicos' possession on> 
their 38-yard line,, 

Several punts, a fumble, and three 
incompleted passes took up the first 
part of the second quarter. The 
middle “of the quarter fdund the baH

their 30-yard line. A Series of bril- 
liant line plunges by Taylor carried

The Men’s Glee Club had an excel- 
lent rehearsal last Thursday evening 
in Corcoran Hall just after classes. 
This seems to be a convenient time 
for rehearsals because there were 
more present than at any previous 

New songs with»catchy and attrac- 
tive airs have been selected by the 
new director, some of which the club 
has already practiced. The club, 
through the addition of many new 
members, is becoming well balanced 
and will soon be whipped into shape. 

The Glee Club is offering another 
advantage to those interested in,, 
training their voices for professional 
work by giving special instruction at 
low rates of tuition. 

Director Harman toJd'The men last 
Thursday that singiiig in the Glee 
Club is a joy and not a duty. The 
club is primarily for men who like to 
sing, and who will accordingly give 
their time and energy for it. He also 
pointed out that a developed voice is 
an asset both socially and financially. 

The next rehearsal of the Glee Club 
will be held Thursday evening in 
Room 17 of Corcoran Hall, beginning 
promptly after classes and lasting for 
one hour. 

A movie benefit will be given at 
Moore’s Rialto Theatre the week of 
November 10th to 14th, inclusive, to 
swell the Columbian Woman’s 
Scholarship fund. “K,” the picturiza- 
tion of Mary Roberts Rinehart’s novel, 
will be the feature of the entertain- 

Tickets sold at the theatre will not 
be credited to the' scholarship fund, 
so, if possible, they should be pro- 
cured from Marguerite Daly, who will 
be in charge of the sale of tickets at 
the University. 

A new constitution for the Inter- 
fraternity Association is now being 
considered by the various member- 
chapters of the fraternities of the 
University. At the meeting of the 
association at the Delta . Tau Delta 
House, Sunday, November 2, copies of 
the proposed constitution were dis- 
tributed among the delegates for the 
consideration of the chapters which 
they represent. Final action on the 
adoption of the new constitution will 
be taken at the next meeting of the 
association at the Phi Sigma Kappa 
House, Sunday, November 16. 


Phi Delta Phi held its first smoker 
of the year at the University Club 
Thursday, October 23. Colonel Thorpe,

thority on prohibition law, the speaker 
of the evening, told of his experiences

What is better than a vic- 
tory? We can think of nothing 
better, unless it is a team that 
can accept unfair decisions in a 
sportsmanlike spirit and still tie 
the score. Victory won by un- 
fair means can be no credit. 
Defeat unmerited, if accepted in 
a spirit such as that of the 
George Washington football 
players, is a victory in itself. 

What school could feel proud 
of a team which refused to lose 
And could not win in fairness? 
What school could fail to feel 
proud of a team even though it 
should go down to defeat at 
every game if it played in a 
spirit of fairness and sports- 
manship ? 

Not only is this spirit neces- 
sary in football but it is neces- 
sary in every field of sport and 
in every walk of life. Nothing 
will take the heart out of a team 
quicker than a seemingly un- 
just or unfair decision, and 
nothing can break the spirit of 
a man in business quicker than 

But whether in sport or in 
business, the man or woman 
who can smile and come back 
with a determination to win is 
the man or woman who will find 
ultimate success. It is only 
those who weaken in adversities 
that fail.

“I am very much pleased with 
the showing made by the George 
Washington student body at the 
game. It shows that G. W. is 
waking up to the fact that it has 
a real football team,” are the 
words of ..Coach Crum immedi- 
ately following the Johns Hop- 
kins game in Baltimore last 

Coach Crum is perfectly justi- 
fied in this feeling. An aggre- 
gation estimated at nearly a 
thousand, composed of students, 
alumni and faculty members — 
probably the largest body ever 
to witness a University game 
away from home — thronged the 
west bleachers of Homewood 
Stadium and cheered their fa- 
vorites on to the greatest game 
, of the season. 

What student cannot be proud 
of his team after a game like 
that played on the home field of 
the famous old medical college? 
Surely the fact that they failed 
to win a justly deserved victory 
does not lessen that pride. 

Last year Johns Hopkins de- 
feated the Hatchetites 62 to 0 in 
A one-sided game, and the year 
beta re George Washington suf- 
fered a 40 to 6 defeat at the 
hands of the Medicos. This 
year Hopkins has another strong 
{team, and to see a Buff and Blue 
Aggregation that can outplay 
the Black and Blue boys in a 
game such as the one witnessed 
Saturday will create a fine spirit

the ball to the visitors’ 25-yard line. 
The G. VV. line braced and held, and 
after three unsuccessful bucks Turn- 
bull was sent back for a drop-kick. 
The ball was squarely in midfield, and 
Ihe kick went over for the first blood 
<>f the game. The half ended with 
the ball in midfield. 

Inspired by a rousing talk by 
Coach Crum, the Buff and Blue swept 
on the field with renewed confidence. 
Loehler’s kickoff was short and went 
to I-evy. He fumbled when tackled 
and G. W. recovered on Hopkins’ 25- 
yard line. Itchier tore through the 
line for 6 yards, made 2 more on the 
next, attempt, and Long went to the 
15-yard line for first down. Loehler 
got 1 yard at tackle, and then went 
around the end for 8. 

It was G. W.’s ball on the 6-yard 
line. Loehler went over for a touch- 
down on the next play, but the referee 
called a 15-yard penalty for holding, 
and added 5 more for delaying of 
game. Loehler went through tackle 
for 12 yards. Bo Lamar stepped back 
and placed the ball squarely between 
the uprights from a difficult angle, 
tying the score. 

After an exchange of punts, Hop- 
kins fumbled on their 40-yard line, 
Vaun Wagner recovering. The referee 
decided it was Hopkins’ ball, however. 
Failing to gain through the line,* Hop- 
kins kicked. Loehler returned the 
punt. Hopkinsf made a first down on 
a fake buck. Hopkins fumbled and 
Zollar recovered for G. W. Long 
fumbled on an attempted cross-buck, 
and it was again Hopkins’ ball. 

Failing to gain, Hopkins punted, 
and Loehler returned the ball to their 
40-yard line. Kris recovered a fumble 
but the referee again gave the ball 
to Hopkins. Taylor fumbled again as I 
the quarter ended, and it was G. W.’s 
ball on their 45-yard line. 

The final quarter found Coach Van 
Orman’s men in the shadow of 
their own goal posts, fighting to stave 
off defeat. Several punts were ex- 
changed as the quarter opened, 
Ivoehler’s superior kicking driving the 
Black and Blue, team back on each 

With the ball G. W.’s in midfield, 
Loehler punted over the Hopkins goal. 
The ball was put in play on the 20- 
yard line, and Taylor fumbled, Bowen 
recovering for G. W. Dick Newby 
was injected into the game, giving 
Hopkins a scare. Newby made 4 
yards off tackle. Loehler went to the 
10-yard line for first down. Newby 
went around left end for what ap- 
peared to be a touchdown, but he ran 
outside on the 6-yard line. Two line 
bucks netted but 1 yard each, and 
Lamar tried another drop-kick. The 
ball was headed on a line for the 
uprights, but a Bluejay leaped into 
the air and deflected its flight. 

G. W. recovered on the 14-yard line. 
Loehler made 5 yards, then 1 yard. 
Newby took the ball to the 2-yard 
line. After being tackled he got up 
off the ball, and a Bluejay gridman 
fell on it. Mr. Maxwell, referee, gave 
the ball to Hopkins. Hopkins kicked 
to the 30-yard line, and a placement 
kick failed as the game ended. G. W., 
though tied, walked off the field vic- 
tors from every point of view. 

A banquet was given the G. W. 
team in the Blue Room of the Hotel 
Belvidere after the game. Coach 
Crum took 36 men to Baltimore in a 
special coach.

The women’s fencing team held 
their initial practice yesterday morn- 
ing under the direction of Professor 
Fietro Lanzilli at his fencing studio, 
1521 K Street Northwest. 

Fencing was introduced in George 
Washington University last year, and 
for the first season about twenty-five 
girls reported for practice. This year 
at least four of that squad will be 
available as a nucleus around which 
to build a strong team for the coming 

Professor Lanzilli, who has been se- 
cured as fencing instructor for the Uni- 
versity squad, is -an excellent instruc- 
tor and is very enthusiastic over the 
prospects for a successful season. He 
teaches the Italian method of fencing 
which, while it is harder than the 
French method, gives a better founda- 
tion for progressive fencing. 

Uniforms for the most part are 
nondescript, but by the end of the 
season it is hoped that regular fenc- 
ing equipment will be available. 
Flans have already been made for the 
purchase of additional foils and 

Practice periods have been arranged 
for Mondays from 9 to 12, Tuesdays 
and Thursdays from 7 to 8, and on 
Fridays from 10 to 12, at Professor

Practice for girls’ basketball will 
tart as soon as the work on the 
gymnasium is finished,' according to 
Miss Jackson, the coach. 

Probably at first there will be a 
series of games between the different 
sororities and then the call for candi- 
dates for the varsity will be issued. 
At present the manager is working 
on a schedule which when finished 
will include about 10 games with col- 
leges in the vicinity. 

As the men’s team will start prac- 
tice some time in the near future it. 
will be necessary for arrangements to 
be made so that the practices will not 
conflict. The schedule will be pub- 
lished as soon as completed.

Coach Brunner, Of Men’s Squad, To 
Assist In Coaching Girls’ 


American Olympic Star To Coach 
G. W. Rifle Team Again 
This Year 

The girls’ swimming squad got 
away with a big start yesterday 
when they held their first practice in 
the Y. W. C^ A >c pool. A number of 
veteran swimmers will return to the 
squad this year, and together with the 
addition of a large number of new 
entrants the group this year looks 
very promising. 

In addition to Mary Jackson, direc- 
tor in physical education for women, 
F. J. Brunner, who is coaching the 
men’s swimming squad, will be pres- 
ent at most of the practices to qssist 
in instruction. 

According to the present schedule, 
practice periods have been arranged 
for the George Washington University 
squad from 4 to B on Mondays and 
Tuesdays, 7 to 7:40 oa Wednesdays, 
3:20 to 4 on Thursdays, and 1 to 2 
on Saturdays. Only the one evening 
period was open at the time arrange- 
ments were made for the women’s 
squad to practice at the Y. W. C. A., 
but efforts are being made to secure 
at least one more evening period for 
those unable to attend practice during 
the afternoon. 

It is required that girls coming out 
for the swimming squad should nave 
a physical examination. Dr. Borden, 
the University physician, will be glad 
to make these examinations, upon 
presentation of activities coupon 
books, at his office in the Rochambeau 
Apartments from 3 to 5 any after- 

With facilities that can be sur- 
passed by only a few institutions, the 
George Washington University rifle 
team this year will make its debut 
with unusual advantages over the 
crack aggregations of former years. 
The new range in the basement of 
Corcoran Hall gives G. W. U. a fore- 
most position in a sport in which it 
has always been one of the peers. 

Practice sessions will be held in the 
new building instead of various places 
in the city as heretofore. The new 
plan in regard to student activities 
fees will also favor the rifle squad. 

Manager William Detweiler is en'j 
thusiastic over the prospects for this 
season and will soon sound the clarion 
call for candidates. Many new men 
are expected to report as interest in 
the rifle sport increases from year to 
year, and especially this season with 
a home habitat. With Capt. Gerald R.

with Wroe Alderson and Albert R.

holding La Follette. The Coolidge 
supporters were victorious by a 2 to 1 
vote of the judges, Albert R. Beatty 
receiving first honors and Samuel 
Watson honorable mention. 

Despite the fact that the debate fell 
on Hallowe’en, 65 were present, in-
